Hindoos and Heathens!

 

(Pictured: Dr. Jatindra Mohan Bose, who dreamt of drawing India nearer to the US through commerce. Sayyid Mohamad Jaffer, a medical student who intended to open up trade between the Deccan and the US.)

 

August 1908 – St. Nihal Singh writes in the Calcutta-based Modern Review, describing the various reactions that Indians receive from Americans: taken for a nirvanic and unanimated character, considered a heathen, or mistreated as a Negro. Singh also details other issues facing Indian students: basic sustenance, the cost of living, etc., and tells of several Americans who have helped Indian students through collegiate organizations.

 

St Nihal Singh was a journalist who lived and travelled through the USA, Canada, and Japan.
